By now, we're all pretty aware of Team Sky's quest for marginal gains to help them benefit in racing situations, but not all rides are races especially for the majority of us, and super aero materials and cuts aren't always favored when we just want to go out and spend some quality time in the saddle. Apparently, the pros feel the same way and Castelli develops the Men's Podio Doppio Full-Zip Jersey specifically for Team Sky riders to use while training. Castelli sought to refine the cut and select a fabric that ensures a great fit that dries quickly and looks great. Drawing upon some favored features from its collection, Castelli bestows some nice touches to the Podio Doppio including the drop tail just below the rear pockets, and an overlapping collar for extra neck protection. The inset sleeves give the jersey that classic, traditional look. Naturally, a full-length YKK Vislon zipper easily dumps heat on warm climbs and the gripper elastic at the waist's hem keeps the jersey in place over the course of the ride. Team Sky was so happy with the jersey, some riders even asked Castelli if they could race in it. It doesn't have the remarkable aerodynamics of some other Castelli jerseys, so that'd get a no from Dave Brailford and Co. but for long training days it's fair game.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
